Operation Milap: over 300 children rescued in 7 months

The Delhi Police Crime Branch has rescued 333 children from the Capital. These children were missing since January 2019 from various parts of the country and found in the Capital, the police said.

Additional Commissioner of Police (Crime Branch) Rajiv Ranjan said that they have also tracked down 57 people, including 14 minors, who were kidnapped, abducted, or went missing from various areas in the national capital. “Of these, 14 are minors, 37 are females. Most of these children have been rescued from bus stands, railway stations and other crowded places in the city. During the last one week, the AHTU has found 15 people who had been reported missing or kidnapped in Delh,” said Mr. Ranjan.

The operation Milap under which children are rescued was launched in December 2014. Under this project, the Anti Human Trafficking Unit (AHTU) of the Delhi Police develops information, rescues the trafficked or kidnapped person and arrests the kidnappers, he said.

The rescued children are counselled and also given requisite medical attention. Police are trying to find out the parents of the children rescued, so that they can be reunited with their families, the police said.
